Description

The shoulder is a complex joint within the human body where multiple structures and tissues can be affected by pathology or injury. Sports therapists and sports massage therapists regularly come into contact with patients who suffer from shoulder pain or stiffness. The ability to perform a successful and detailed shoulder assessment can affect your patient's prognosis and also the success of the treatments you choose to provide.

A successful shoulder assessment includes a number of aspects including a subjective and objective assessment. A subjective assessment follows the same pattern as other joint assessments, however, there are a number of special questions, signs and symptoms specific to the shoulder which all therapists should be aware of. A shoulder objective assessment also includes a number of sections, initiating with an observation followed by the assessment of the patient's active range of movement, passive range of movement and then manual muscle testing, special tests and finally palpation. The success of the above assessment methods to rule in or rule out shoulder pathology relies upon a number of factors including the therapist's knowledge, experience and manual handling techniques.

There are a range of shoulder treatment techniques within the scope of practice of a sports massage therapists and sports therapists. Common shoulder treatment techniques include soft tissue release, stretching exercises, strengthening exercises, postural correction and taping techniques. Selecting the most appropriate shoulder treatment techniques requires sound clinical reasoning using the information gained from your subjective and objective assessment.
